Putting the ‘Spring’ in Spring Break

The South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton has lined up some seasonal outdoor activities for kids and teens next week, plus a big celebration of Earth Day.

On Tuesday at 10 a.m., the focus will be on backyard birds, with an emphasis on listening to their chirps and calls. On Wednesday, also at 10, environmental educators will lead a nature walk to engage children’s senses, and at 1 p.m. Ken Morse, the owner of Tight Lines Tackle in Sag Harbor, will introduce kids ages 6 and up, as well as adults, to the basics of recreational fishing. Be on the lookout for reptiles and amphibians during next Thursday’s 10 a.m. session.

Each of these activities has a $10 admission fee for children, $15 for adults, with free admission for museum members. Sign-up ahead of time is required and can be done by calling 631-537-9735 or emailing [email protected].

Earth Day is Friday, April 22, when SoFo will host a free open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be nature-inspired art demonstrations, books to borrow, face painting, games, presentations by the museum’s youth groups, and other activities. A full schedule of events is at

On Saturday of this week, SoFo will have a program exploring healthy waterways at 10:30 a.m. and a full moon hike at 8 p.m. in partnership with the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt. The museum is also open for general admission each day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with occasional closures for programs.
